asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that the general secretary of the Northern Rhodesian Mine Workers' Union has been deported to this country; what representations he has received on the matter; and whether he is taking any action?Colonel Stanley: As stated in the answer which I gave to the hon. Member for West Fife (Mr. Gallacher) on 16th December last, Mr. F. S. Maybank was removed to this country with the approval of the Secretary of State. Representations and inquiries have been received from certain bodies, including the Trades Union Congress and the Labour Party. But I have seen no reason to differ from the decisions taken in this matter which were indicated in the answer mentioned above and in the earlier reply given to the hon. Member for Bridgeton (Mr. Maxton) on 21st October, 1942.
